There is a description of the bust benefit (and a brief newspaper review) under the Feb 23 entry here:

The poster was pretty cool, too.

You've never heard the "White Bird" - It's a Beautiful Day?

"hmm hum hun humm hum hun hun hun humm"


David LaFlamme was a great violinist which made this band interesting combined with a female/male vocal duo.

Like the great fiddle players of his time, John Hartford, Vassar Clements, Papa John Creach and Charlie Daniels these cats posessed the gift, an ability to finger pick solos on the little acoustic guitar with sustain.


White bird,
in a golden cage,
on a winter's day,
in the rain.

White bird,
in a golden cage,
alone.

The leaves blow,
Across the long black road.
To the darkened skies,
in its rage

But the white bird just sits in her cage,
unknown.

White bird must fly
Or she will die

White bird,
dreams of the aspen trees,
with their dying leaves,
turning gold.

But the white bird just sits in her cage,
growing old.

White bird must fly or she will die.
White bird must fly or she will die.

The sunsets come, the sunsets go.
The clouds roll by,and the earth turns old.
And the young bird's eyes do always glow.

She must fly,
She must fly,
She must fly.

White bird,
In a golden cage,
On a winter's day, in the rain.

White bird,
In a golden cage alone.

White bird must fly or she will die.
White bird must fly or she will die.
White bird must fly or she will die.
